With the disruption to power, having trades persons in the house and the general upheaval of having the contents of the kitchen distributed across the entire house I have not been sewing! The kitchen is in, but still not finished. We are waiting on the glass splash backs (always put in after the kitchen, so the measurements are exact), so that delays the fitting of power points in those areas and of course the painter needs to come.
Here is a sneaky shot, of me making good use of my new bench! The colour is a bit over exposed, but the bench is a very pale granite look laminex. I finally finished the quilting on the last two stars of the Transport Ohio Star quilt (the majority was quilted at our last All Day sewing session in April) and made the binding. I sewed the binding on, but haven't joined it yet....small problem that needs to be dealt with first!
These are the lovely shirting's I brought at The Sewing Sanctuary, during my groups shop hop two weekends ago. I plan to use these in the Seven Sisters quilt
This is the butterfly print I brought at Aldinga, but the Christmas table runner kit is from The Patchwork Cow - their own pattern. This is the first kit I have ever brought would you believe!
And finally here is the Bugs in a Bottle quilt, with its final two borders I sewed on, a lovely brown spot I had previously brought at my local shop (Tricia's Discount Fabrics) and the butterfly print from Aldinga. I had totally forgot about the brown spot until I got home, but was determined to not waste it, so also cut and made the binding from it.
So a few projects are closer to being finished and one tired blogger off to fit more "stuff" in her gorgeous new kitchen cabinets...let me assure you that you can waste lots of time reorganising the pantry!
Happy quilting Sue SA.
